The Case For Telemedicine
Many of you have been using Telemedicine services in the era of Covid pandemic. Although it is a service that has been around for years it has certainly gotten a lot more publicity lately. And it is definitely a much needed service in our current environment.
Moreover, there are many reasons that you may find yourself in need of tele health services before and even after our era of social distancing.
My Journey Into Telemedicine
I decided to transition to a virtual practice months ago; way before the threat of Covid was even known. And with no idea that telemedicine would be so needed. For anyone unfamiliar, telemedicine or telehealth visits are video conference calls between a physician and a patient.
Which Platforms Are Used For Telemedicine
And this should be done on a HIPPA compliant device although these rules have been waived by our government temporarily. There are many platforms that your doctor can use to provide a safe, secure connection. Once you are on a video chat, your doctor can address any issues you have just as they would in a face to face visit.
The Pros Of Telemedicine
The advantages are no drive time, no wait time, and it’s the comfort of your own home!
